Belgium's second largest music festival, which manages to pack in tens of thousands of alt-rock and pop fans into a pretty woodland enclosure, celebrates its 28th birthday. Among its many appeals are the obligatory strong Belgian beer and a varied whose-who lineup including Eminem, The xx, Neil Young and Crazy Horse and The Knife. Plus, festival goers get free train travel from Brussels. It's a no-brainer for anyone in Belgium, but also pretty damn appealing wherever you live.
